Add to Goodreads:
I haven’t seen her in three years.
I haven’t talked to her since the kiss.
So why am I on a plane, flying across the world to spend a week with her in Germany?
One word: Pops.
My life’s a mess.
My possible football career is hanging on by a thread.
I’m driving the roads of Germany in honor of Pops with the one girl I can never have.
And I’m sharing a bed with her, the girl I’ve measured everyone else up to, while desperately trying to not to touch her.
We made a pact growing up, never to get romantic with each other – never fall in love.
And I’m about to break that pact. For good.
Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars
In The Romantic Pact, we get a second-chance (of sorts) romance between Crew and his childhood best friend, Hazel. They’d lost touch over the years when his sole focus became football. But Crew is suffering in the wake of his grandfather’s death, and for closure, he’s sent off on a road trip to Germany. Planned by his Pops. With Hazel as his travel companion. Hazel and Crew had made a romantic pact to never fall for one another, but after a short kiss a few years back, Crew got freaked out, took off and hasn’t spoken to her since.
This book is filled with hysterical moments as Crew and Hazel fix their friendship and travel around Germany together. There is flirting and sexy banter, lots of sexual tension, and all that awkwardness that goes along with crossing the line from friends to lovers. Pops just knew that his grandson and unofficial granddaughter were meant to be together. And by the end of the week, Hazel and Crew are head over heels with one another. But with their lives on divergent paths, wanting to be together and making it actually happen are two very different things.
Will one of them have to give up their dream in order to make their relationship work? Is their love worth sacrificing everything that Crew thought he wanted out of life? Or is he realizing that what he really wants is something altogether different?
This is the point where I have to admit that while I’ve read every one of Meghan Quinn’s books in the past 3-4 years, I have not read much of her older catalog of work… Like The Mother Road. Crew is the son of that book’s couple, Porter and Marley, and the roadtrip that Crew and Hazel go in is a throwback to the roadtrip that his parents had gone on with Pops twenty-odd years earlier. It is now being bumped up on my TBR list!
I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
